Daily living – How to Make Meal Times Easier

tenura-at-mealtimesEveryday life is full of little challenges and tasks which the healthiest and able-bodied people find difficult or tiring. These tasks include Hoovering, cooking, hanging the washing out and many other tasks in day to day life.

All of these tasks are important in day to day life but can be tiring and difficult to fit into a busy lifestyle. These tasks become even harder when suffering from impairments or diseases such as Arthritis, which affect your grip and motor functions. Suddenly these tasks are near impossible without strain on muscles and joints, usually accompanied by lots of pain. This can pose a threat to your independent living and general lifestyle. Luckily, Tenura has a wide range of products which can be combined to help in all areas of the home.

In this blog post, we will be focusing on how different diseases and motor impairing injuries can affect a very important part of daily life. How to make mealtimes easier!

Whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner, mealtimes can be stressful and exhausting, especially with a young family. There can be spills, stains, arguments and tears. This is something we can all do without, especially when hot liquids or food can ruin clothes, burn skin or make a big mess which someone (usually you) will have to clean up. Tenura can provide high quality daily living aids designed to prevent spills and stains, make cutlery easier to hold, and keep plates and dishes steady.

This will help to keep plates, dishes, and bowls at the dinner table from sliding, helping to prevent potential spills and stains. These mats are constructed from an anti-microbial silicone, meaning no bacteria or germs can harbour or grow on this material. Tenura mats are also very easy to clean, a simple application of soap and warm water will be more than enough to clean off any dirt or grime that may build up after a prolonged usage. After this material has dried, it will regain all non-slip properties, allowing it to be used again and again.

Coasters

In day to day life, we all have clumsy moments which can lead to spills and stains which you have to clean up. We have all knocked a fresh cup of tea or coffee all over the floor. Tenura coasters are there to safeguard against this problem by creating a surface in-between the cup and table and stop the cup from moving. Unfortunately if you have a coaster on a particularly shiny and slippery table, this can move around and slide, potentially spilling the cup, mug or glasses contents all over your table, work surface or breakfast bar. This can not only create one big mess, but could lead to slips and falls which could lead to serious injury.

Thankfully Tenura has a wide range of silicone anti slip coasters, in many different sizes and shapes, designed to prevent objects from sliding around and accommodate all size of cups and mugs.
